PITREAVIE Group has unveiled plans to open a new £3.8 million corrugated box manufacturing facility in Cumbernauld.
The packaging specialist said the 57,000 sq. ft. site will bring 35 new skilled jobs to Scotland and result in the company offering a ‘significantly enhanced’ range of solutions, with the facility capable of producing more than thirty million boxes per year.
Glenrothes-headquartered Pitreavie Group was founded in 2010 and has since enjoyed organic growth as well as completing the acquisitions of Sorba-Freeze, Andersons Packaging, CP Cases and Snapco Industrial Supplies. The group described the new manufacturing site as a ‘major step’ in the evolution of the business.
Group MD Stephen Heslop said, “This is a pivotal moment for Pitreavie Group. We have had our teams working since October to get our new premises up and running. A major investment in new equipment will allow the business to step up a gear and provide an even greater level of service for our customers.
“Opening this new facility has allowed us to expand our workforce and we have plans to employ a further 35 people over the next three years. We genuinely believe we have one of the most knowledgeable, innovative and passionate teams in the industry which ensures that we can provide consistent quality to our clients.
“In the past year we have invested in our people and our businesses and we have seen them go from strength to strength – this new site further reinforces our position in the UK market as well as here in Scotland.”
The new site is due to officially open in March.
